Hollywood spits in the faces of the public - again

Hollywood Spits on You
Award shows are self-masturbatory
fantasies for the Hollywood Elites

I gave up watching these phony "award" shows years ago. Simply the Hollywood Elites hate the movies I enjoy watching.

The top ten movies of 2017
Not one film was nominated for best picture
If the public likes a film then Hollywood will ignore it.

As usual Hollywood ignored movies the public enjoyed and mostly nominated loser movies that almost no one had any desire to see.  I will continue my boycott of all of these phony award shows.

To the right of the movie is the worldwide box office in blue for that movie.
“Darkest Hour”               ------------ $78 million 

“Dunkirk”                        ----------- $525 million

“Phantom Thread”         ----------- $6 million

“Get Out”                       ----------- $254 million

“The Post”                     ----------- $55 million

“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”  --------- $54 million

“The Shape of Water”   ---------- $39 million

“Lady Bird”                    ---------- $38 million

“Call Me by Your Name”  -------- $9 million

i understand this post
you are comparing the uncomparable ... on a misguided way
look ?!
FOR AGES THE BLOCKBUSTERS don`t are awarded ... some are often as Titanic and so ... thats not a usual Oscar academy way
But neverdless the Academy awarded movies with public awaress, general public , or most ... they got a kind of common , art sense , ... to award movies ... if are not full COMERCIAL Entertaitment , or if are not like those as like european State sponsor that nobody saw ... are good art pieces with general public aceptance , and value ...
a good way to be fair
with that onslaught of PC , "and grope by the pussy , pussy hats , gender wars " by that "dark hidden campaign" , maybe this year the academy award a " kind of no one go see that movie as boring it is" ...
but have some hope
they will still may rise that common sense
never those Marvel movies that you post it will won ... they are full entertainment , and don`t add nothing more than special good effects
keep a way to be a critical viewer
